Hike to Mt Brione

Starting at Riva, the hike leads through olive groves up to the small rock at the north-eastern side of Lake Garda.

The Monte Brione represents uplands in the lower Val di Sarca, a hill which seems as a natural viewing platform on the Lago di Garda lake. It is an ideal destination in spring, through olive groves up to the viewpoints.

The parking space at the Viale Rovereto is our starting point. Past the papermill and then on the Via Filanda we proceed towards the mountain. We leave the houses of Riva behind us and walk up through a terraced landscape, a huge continuous olive grove. The small traffic-calmed road winds up to the nature reserve and we enter the path at the southern cliff of the mountain. The path leads up through the shrubland and we are rewarded by amazing views on the Lago di Garda, Riva and Torbole again and again. It’s end of April and it’s teeming of many different species of butterflies.

For our descent we stay at the southern edge of the mountain which leads us directly to the lakeshore. To come back to the parking space we follow the promenade of Riva.
